View Full Version : P710L HITI

Hy there guys,

Do any of you use this printer? If so can you give any feedback please?

17-11-2009, 09:13 AM
Hi. I now use a HiTi roll fed printer. Not sure of the model number without searching through paperwork. Absolutely brilliant. No profiling or faffing about with techie stuff. Plug it in, brilliant 9x6 print in about 13 seconds, pop it into a mount and a £10 note appears in your hand. Job done. Simples. Dave Smith, Al Fresco Event Photography.

Hy Dave

That sound about right i think we are talking about the same printer.
At the moment i have the old HiTi 730, printing a 8x6" in 70 sec. I have done alot with it so i think it needs an upgrade.
The reason i want the P710L HITI is because it has drivers for mac and i really like the quality on them. Never had a problem.

Thanks

Raul

You would have done better to stick this in the Printer section on the forum guys. ;-)

The current machines are the HiTi P710L, and the HiTi 510 ( this has a screen on it)

Oh just one other thing Raul, Mac drivers are available for a great many of te printers out there, Mitsubishi, Sony and Fuji included.

Sorry about posting this here, i'll post it on the right section next time. Funny i can't find a driver for the fuji or sony dye-subs.

I think Mark failed to mention one other printer with a MAC driver and that is the DNP DS40 which will save you about 7Kgs when you have to carry it in to the venue. Has the best colour out of the box of any printer I have used.

They do exist ( the mac drivers), believe me.

17-11-2009, 11:08 AM
Well Photomart don't lits any drivers for mac , according to them the only work on windows.

Well, you are more than welcome to check with the manufacturers, I am sorry if we are not displaying them, but they do exist.

Put it this way, which machine are you particularly interested in?

17-11-2009, 04:10 PM
Sorry if i offended anyone those were not my intentions. I was interested on the fuji machine.
And yes i have found that there is a driver for it.

Regards

and even lighter at 13.5kgs is the P510s which has an integrated screen and the P510Si has inbuilt wireless a first with roll fed dye sub printers offering 6x9 prints.

No offence taken. At all. :-)

Valid point there from Stuart, although the print time is not as keen as others, but that would be a bit picky to make a big deal about.

Yes true, but still faster than the CP9550DW which a lot of people are using and finding quite fast enough.

CP9550DW - 6x9 = 30 seconds.
HiTi P510S - 6x9 = 21 seconds

So you're right it would be picky to make a big deal about :D

Kind Regards

Hi. I bought my 710 from System Insight and I'm very pleased with it.
If I had to be really picky I'd say it's a little loud and sounds a bit clunky when the roll feeds in and out whilst printing. However, it's fast and produces top quality prints.

Hi Amanda,

They are all noisy, clunky, heavy, expensive,

but don't you just love it when you put 30p in and it shoots a £10 out !

Alan,

personally I find the mitsy 3800, the dnp ds40 & DNP DS80 to have broken that mould and are much quieter in operation. I have not used the HiTi 510 yet so cant say how that rates.

Mike

It's not quiet - if that helps.

When used at an event I didn't really notice it, but printing out some stuff in my office (4th bedroom next to the kid's room) i can't use it in the evening when he is asleep as it will probably wake him.

I previously used the HiTi 730 and, although I wouldn't describe it as a truly professional printer (nothing to do with the quality, only due to it's speed and that it needed reloading every 30 prints), it was whisper quiet and smooth in operation. I traded it in and got the 710 which is very fast but would definately wake the kids up in the next room. That said, at functions, there's always background noise so it's not an issue. I do struggle with the weight though, which is where Col comes in.

Sorry - I shouldve made it clear- I was referring to the 510 rather than the 710 - following on from mike's post

Mike, I agree the 3800 ect are pretty much silent

with exception of the above mentioned printers, to be honest I think that the noise emitted by 95% of models out there has never stopped anyone buying a print or two,

never had a complaint from anyone other than my wife 5 years ago trying to get to sleep at 2am whilst I was setting up my then new 9500 icc colour profile up in Express Digital Darkroom.

It has to be said that the 9800ect models are not suited for Bedroom warriors with exceptional hearing...

Alan,

I have had issues where the organisers have asked me to stop printing during speeches, whilst I understand it is a pain.

Was pre DNP days ?

Never come across the problem as I'm aware of distraction & noise issues , I never print during important parts of the evening, I also turn off the lights and don't Photograph during the meal, raffle, or presentation,

As i feel its not good etiquette.

I do the above out of Consideration & Courtesy and have never had a noise problem since 2001...

Only ever had problems as regards noise with my now retired Mit CP8000DW and as with Mike was asked to stop printing during speeches, raffle etc. Alas, this didn't stop me taking pictures.
